Fresh tomato sauce.
This is one of the easiest, freshest dishes you can whip up courtesy of your garden or farmer’s market. Two pots for dinner. One fabulous dinner!
3 lbs of fresh tomatoes (I used yellow and red), washed and chopped
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 handful of fresh basil, chopped
Optional: Grated parmesan (1/4 cup of loosely packed)
In your sauté pan over medium heat, add olive oil, cut tomatoes, garlic and seasonings. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Then puree with a immersion blender. If adding cheese, add that now along with basil. Stir and taste. Adjust seasonings as necessary.
In a separate pot, boil your water and add salt. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Top pasta with the sauce and enjoy!

I can’t get over how amazing this recipe is! 🙂 I’ve been having so much fun with you via fb I realized I needed to stop by your blog!! <3 it!!
Thanks Abby!! You are the sweetest thing! I’m still obsessing about Watson. I’m obsessed with bulldogs. 🙂 Thanks for popping by!
Do you think I could freeze this? My garden is really producing some amazing tomatoes and I am trying to find different ways of preserving my summer bounty.
Yes you can! Absolutely 🙂 oxoxo
I love seeing the bottle of Apothic Red sitting in the background! I recently discovered this wine, and it’s wonderful! Smooth, rich, and earthy flavor for under $10.00! Also, it keeps better than a lot of other wines. Once opened, it tends to not turn vinegary within the three days, as a lot of other red wines will.
